  1. Kudos as the feature story! Your victory is so hard won and so inspiring.

    Dave Ramsey’s debt journey motto is “Live like no one else so you can live and GIVE like no one else.” Your blog has been your catalyst of “giving” all along by sharing so much motivation, insight and real talk of your debt free journey.

    Thank you & congratulations! Can’t wait for your debt free scream on Dave’s show!

Thanks again! We’re waiting to hear back from the people at Ramsey’s show:)
